Australia is both a continent and a country. Home to dozens of unique animal life, this is one of the world’s premier destinations for vacationing. When planning a trip to Australia, it is a good idea to think well in advance about how to get there, what to see and where to stay. As a highly modern nation with a well-developed rail system and great infrastructure, it’s easy to get around Australia. However, bear in mind that Australia is a big place. Australia is actually the sixth largest country in the world by area. In general, Australia is divided into two sections. The coastlines are where most of the population and large cities lie. The interior, known as the outback, is the larger part of the country. Most travelers aim to see both areas during their trip.

The Cities

The nation of Australia is home to many world-class cities. Large cities such as Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, and Brisbane cluster along the coast. Staying in a big city such as Sydney makes it easy to tour local sites. For example, a stay at Sydney Gardenview is an ideal way to interact with Sydneysiders and enjoy all the many wonderful pleasures of this expanding part of the world. Other cities are equally charming. Perched on the edge of the large Australian state of Western Australia, historic and pretty Perth is a major hub in the area and a gateway for those heading to Asia.

The Outback

Another must-see for many travelers here is the Outback. This large arid desert region is still home to some of the world’s rarest creatures. A trip to the Outback is a chance to truly get away from it all in a serene part of the world rarely touched by human footprints. Tours of the Outback are both popular and very easy to find. A quick tour can be arranged at the last minute. For a longer tour or even a chance to spend time in the Outback overnight, it is a good idea to make such arrangements well in advance before leaving. A good guide can point out special features such as animals that may only come out at night or where native people have settled before.

Memorable Times

Any trip to Australia offers truly memorable opportunities for any happy and creative traveler. Australia’s largest cities are home to a tremendously vibrant native culture. They’re also home to many world-class dining spaces as well as historical sites and great places to walk. Other areas of Australia are also full of wonder and delight. Gazing at the stars at midnight in the heart of the Outback in an area with little man-made noise is an experience most people will treasure for the rest of their lives. Let Australians show you their country as up close in a truly personal way. You will have memories of warm beaches, welcoming beaches, incredible cities and unique wildlife that will stay with you forever.
